SDSM& T STUDENTS TO PREVIEW CHILDREN’S SCIENCE CENTER’S NEW OUTREACH BOX ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 11
Undergraduate students from the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) will be previewing an Outreach Box at Borders Books and Music on Thursday, November 11 at 2: 00 pm. The Outreach Box is an educational trunk at the Children’s Science Center which will teach elementary age children about dinosaurs and paleontology.
Paleontology students enrolled in a Museum Techniques class at Tech have designed the Outreach Box as an interactive learning tool for elementary students. Borders Books and Music and Prince and Pauper book stores have donated games, puzzles, books, models, and videos to provide a fun, hands- on way to learn about dinosaurs and paleontology.
On Thursday the paleo students will go through the various activities found in the Outreach Box which offers K- 6 students an opportunity to learn about dinosaurs and paleontology within their own classroom. The Outreach Box is designed as an educational tool teachers can check- out from the Science Center for use in their classroom.
The Children’s Science Center is an educational partnership between the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T), Rapid City, and area communities. The Science Center is located at 515 West Boulevard. For information about how you can bring the Outreach Box to your school, contact the Children’s Science Center at ( 605) 394- 6996.
